On Thanksgiving Day, the Black River Falls Fire Department began its annual “Keep The Wreath Green” holiday fire prevention campaign that will end on New Year’s Day.

The wreath which will be hanging on the side of the fire station has all green lights. Any time there is a structure fire in the county during the fire prevention campaign, a green light will be replaced with a red light to indicate a structure fire had occurred somewhere within the county.

The goal of the six week campaign is to have no red lights in the wreath at the end.

The goal of the campaign is not only to Keep The Wreath Green, but also help make folks aware of extra safety that needs to be taken during the holiday season.
